SOUTH ASIAN RISK REDUCTION PROGRAM
Family Physician, Registered Dietician, Exercise Coach and/or Yoga Therapist
Take Control Of Your Genes
Your genes are not your destiny - your lifestyle is. A study conducted by McMaster University came to striking conclusions in which they found that South Asians in Canada have higher rates of heart disease, and double the rate of diabetes compared to Caucasians. These results are partly due to the genetic predisposition to these disorders in this community. Your genes may make you more susceptible to diabetes and heart conditions. However, we all fail to realize that we have the power to control our genes, through our lifestyle. At Mindful Medicine we will empower and educate you with lifestyle solutions through a 6-month program with monthly meetings with our physician, registered dietician, exercise coach and/or yoga therapist.
*Please note our OHIP variation of this program only includes counseling with our physician. A team approach is high recommended*
